On the 11th and 12th September 2014 PowerFolder was pleased to participate in the Datacenter Iaas Workshop in Helsinki, Finland hosted by CSC (IT-Center for Science) organized as part of GÉANT, the pan-European research and education network that interconnects Europe’s National Research and Education Networks (NRENs). Participants from all major NREN organizations came to together to discuss IT-solutions in an evolving, international research and education environment:

A wide range of cloud services is available. What kind of technology is behind these solutions? What is required to build own cloud? Is it worthwhile to build your own cloud or is joint procurement a better choice? What if the services are outsourced, how to ensure high quality of services? How can energy efficiency be ensured when capacity is obtained as a service? This workshop tries to find answers to the above questions.

PowerFolder, the market leader for file-sync and share solutions in education and research in Germany, presented its state-of-the art solution as it is in production at multiple datacenters around the globe including single large scale installations serving up to a half million users.

A big thank you goes out to the team at CSC for such perfect organization.
